Zip-file upload on behalf of students

Instructors are able to upload a zip file of papers to a Turnitin assignment. The zip file may be any size up to 200MB and contain up to 1000 individual files. If the zip file exceeds either limit it will be rejected.

In uploading zip files, you are advised to ensure that no unacceptable file types are contained within the zip file and to be careful of duplicate copies of the same file within the zip file. Turnitin will attempt to detect duplicate or invalid files and warn you of any duplicate or unacceptable files.

Note: All files must be unique within a .zip file upload.
